    1955 Topps Rails & Sails Original Art (23). The Topps "Rails and Sails" set presents some of the most attractive gumcards ever made as the set's subjects are presented with historically accurate detail on 200 full-color cards, including 130 locomotives, railroad cars and other train-related items, as well as 70 military and civilian sailing ships. This lot offers one-of-a-kind painted artwork, measuring 5" x 3.5" and depicting (23) separate military and civilian sailing ships. All of the artworks are extraordinarily vivid in color and detail, and all reflect minimally Near Mint preservation in their subject drawings with standard working paste up residue on the verso. Designs and card numbers include: #131, #134, #135, #137, #138, #139, #141, #142, #144, #145, #148, #153, #154, #158, #160, #164, #165, #167, #181, #182, #185, #192, #194.
